U.S. Cellular Providing Free Phone Chargers, Power Packs To Iowans


U.S. Cellular customers in Iowa impacted by Monday's storm have a chance to get their phones charged-up.

The company on Wednesday said it is offering free phone chargers, and some free power packs to people. Thousands of U.S. Cellular customers lost service and electricity and it could be several more days before power is fully restored.

In a statement, U.S. Cellular said these stores will provide free wall and car chargers and portable power packs while supplies last:

351 West Kimberly Road, Davenport

901 S. Center St., Marshalltown

3800 Merle Hay Road, Des Moines

4444 First Ave. NE, Cedar Rapids

Through the end of the month the company says "customers in the impacted areas can rest assured that they will continue to have the smartphone data they need and not be charged for any voice, text or data overages.”
